Learn simple, very effective techniques to address the tightness in our common stress areas as we release the tightness and stagnation from our bodies. This practice is safe and beneficial for everyone, and targets typical stress areas in the body like the neck/shoulders and the lower back and hips to decrease pain and increase mobility and range of motion.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce stress in the body due to sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body. The pain usually originates from specific points within your myofascial tissues called “trigger points.” Myofascial Release is a safe, technique that focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points by applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Through breath, movement, self-massage, trigger point therapy and myofascial release we will focus on our muscles head-to-toe for a release not always accessible by stretching alone. Using simple myofascial release techniques combined with a few gentle movement stretches; the only things we need are a clear wall or door to lean on and a myofascial release ball, easily substituted by a tennis ball!
Juli has studied anatomy and movement, learning about the physical development of the body, as well as Myofascial Release in the Yoga Tune-up style. She attended trainings with Ariel Foster, Doctor of Physical Therapy, acquiring skills to use Trigger Point Therapy and Myofascial Release in combination with yoga movements to help postural issues where the emphasis draws inward as in meditation and energetic practices well as physically.
